-- understated, obviously. neil: go ahead. >> well, there's a couple things. even under paul ryan's budget, which he just came out with, i guess today, spending there increases 3 #-4% a year. spending's not cut or raibed in. the other point is we want to shift money from the private -ector to the public sector, and, yet, the boom years, under both reagan and clinton saw them reduce government spending as a percentage of the gdp. it was only george bush that things ramped up and things flat lined as they have since obama's been in office. neil: peter, what's to stop nip in the white house from looking at the markets, looking at the improving economic status, not across the board, but enough of the board to feel we run the spending board, keep doing what we are doing because, obviously, it's working. look at those markets. what do you think? >> what's going to stop them is voters, for one thing, and house republicans for another who basically said they're not in the mood for any kind of tax hikes right now, and, you know, patty murray's budget raises about a trillion dollars, and all else being equ
